was the campaign? >> well, first it was a very close election in ohio and ohio was one of key states, even if we won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the techno
previously. that's something that is of great concern to countries like the united states that view iran's nuclear activities with very deep suspicion, don. >> absolutely. speaking of the united states, the u.s. president barack obama said this week that he believed there was a, quote, window of time to peacefully resolve this with iran. but what are the implications now, matthew? >> well, i mean, the implications are that if iran were to make use of its new increased capacity to make nuclear material for weapons, and it hasn't said that it will do this, it said quite the opposite, in fact, that would mean that we have an opportunity that president obama was talking about would get narrower. at the moment, though, i think it is important to point out that iran is still staying well clear of the sort of line in the sand, the red line, that it would cross to provoke any kind of military response. it still doesn't have the kind of nuclear material or indeed the other technologies necessary to build a nuclear weapon, at least not for some significant time in the future, don. >> matthew chanc
tax and a value added tax, carbon energy tax. i hope you're wrong. finally, since obama comes from chicago i think he brings chicagos dirty politics to the nationalstage. there prove my point. we love hearing from you. send me an e-mail. and finally, cash-strapped new york state taking a ridiculous approach to the dmv. the state has tentatively chosen the highest bidder, not the lowest among the highest bidder temperatures driver's licenses, a canadian company. it gets worse. the company can only provide black-and-white photos, and not done. if approved the contract we will cost the state $38 million more than the next operator. still losing vendors and of the company that has produced a license for new york for the last 16 years. they're protesting the award. this takes outsourcing to a whole new level. again, maybe black and white license photos will look better. that's my "2 cents more."
states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
the old order argument that the united states always have to be the leader and you had a president obama a candidate or a president who has made clear over the past four years that while he believes there are moments when american interests are vitally challenged, where it has to step in and take the lead, the bin laden raid cometh to the iranian nuclear program. there are many other issues in which he is perfectly happy to have the rest of the world step up. we saw this in libya and boosting the outcome of this to some degree in libya. this is part of life in the united states is described at the light footprint strategy. the idea of the u.s. does not have to be falling and to every single issue. so what the light footprint and what that not so good at? 35 miles from islamabad of course is that the knowledge of anybody else in pakistan. it is fairly good at getting deep down into the iranian nuclear program using cyberweapons and i've spent a fair bit of reporting time in the past two years on the question of how the united states managed to use its type logical advantage to going to do
obama as president of the united states of america, and, you know, as a country, it was a remarkable time. it was a different election. in the midst of a financial crisis, a crisis -- i forgot my clock, otherwise i would go on for 45 minutes. [laughter] a financial crisis that really started here in the united states, but brought almost the entire global economy to its knees, and in the course of that election, and with president obama taking oches, we really -- office, we really, as a country, were at a cross roads where to go next with the system that was a broken status quo. go back as a country to the stable financial regulation, boring banking after the last major financial crisis, the great depression, boring, but effective, decade upon decade of financial stability that had orerred in remarkable era of growth for the country. unfortunately, broken down piece by piece leading up to the financial crisis. would we double down on the system? take those banks that were so large and so interconnected and so politically powerful that our leaderships decided that any one of which, if
zelig. austin goolsbee, former chairman of the council of economic investors under president obama, and michael boskin, who spoke last night as chief economic advisor for george h. w. bush. we have a whole world to spend. i want to start out with the united states. very few people in this room understand the president as well as us. many are asking -- what is going to come? i would like to look through the fiscal cliff and ask you to describe for us how you see the budget negotiations playing out over the next six months. >> it feels to me like they always had a deal last year. the principal bottleneck was not that the president was on willing to offer cuts. it was that there was a group of republicans in the house who would not go for the revenue. i think that is still the bottle neck now. you probably saw the article this morning from hubbard. i take from this collection some optimism of 2013 and the way that might play out, whether we go or do not go over the fiscal cliff, we get to some space where if they did $1 trillion in cuts and reforms it was $1 trillion on discretionary,
,000. >>> president obama will be pretty busy looking for new personnel in his cabinet. he now has the task of looking for a new c.i.a. director and needs to nominate a new secretary of state candidate because hillary clinton has confirmed she will leave the post. cbs news has learned the leading candidate to replace her u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice. white house sources say rice has performed well on iran and north korea, but she has been criticized over the comments she made after the attack in benghazi and may face tough republican opposition. >>> nancy pelosi asked female democrats in the house including incoming freshmen to join her at a news conference. she became the first woman ever to lead a party caucus on capitol hill. after the mid-term election, she became the first ever female speaker of the house. >>> a teen already behind bars accused of murder is now facing another charge. 17-year-old joshua mebane is accused of killing teresa bass and critically injuring her husband jerry if waldorf last -- in waldorf last month. the couple was out walking their dog when mebane sho

[applause] millions of women's votes to help us select a record number of people to the congress of the united states. understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world. the first time that a parliamentary body would have a party with a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. yesterday, we did not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me, we don't have the gavel. [laughter] [laughter] we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have a gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think that our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there was about 23 members of congress who women out of 435. just think about that. twelve democrats and 11 republicans, something like that. today, we have over 60 house democr

you stop the rocket fire. >> the united states has played its hand certainly in a way that -- that helps netanyahu. the u.s., president obama said personally from the beginning, that the cause of this conflict is hamas rocket attacks on israel. and the intolerable suffering that that causes for israeli population. so he's squarely placed the blame on hamas. at the same time, obama has been working with his contacts in the region. he's been on the phone to president morsi in egypt, to the prime minister in turkey. now we see the u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon heading to cairo. all these diplomatic efforts are also being brought into play. i think, again, it will come down to whether egypt is prepared to exert leverage and pay some capital with its own militant wing to bring hamas into some kind of cease-fire. >> and can the u.s. use as a stick in this diplomacy the billions of dollars in aid that we give to egypt? >> conceivably, that would be possible, norah. i think the u.s. has been very reluctant to play that card so far. one reason we continue to be able to tal

really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way, global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. >>> coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do
